Details

Two guitarists, Solos & Duo

 

Tetuzi Akiyama

Guitar player
Born in Tokyo, April 13, 1964.
Akiyama specializes in creating music with elements of both primitivism and realism by connecting his own aspirations, in a minimal and straightforward way, to the special instrumental qualities of the guitar. Sometimes delicately and sometimes boldly, he controls sound volumes ranging from micro to macro, in an attempt to convert the body into an electronic entity.

 

Ryutaro Endo

Ryutaro Endo is a guitarist based in Tokyo. After studying Photography and Art, he transitioned his creative expression into music. While being part of the Tokyo Avant-garde and improvised music scene, Endo keeps his music rooted in traditional styles such as Jazz and Blues and performs diversely with various musicians. His solos, on the other hand, use fundamental guitar tones which balance explorations of the familiar and the unknown.
Ryutaro has played with musicians such as Tetuzi Akiyama, Toshimaru Nakamura, Taku Sugimoto. Martin Taxt and Norbert Lobo

To our mind, Ryutaro's guitar playing evokes traces of early Taku Sugimoto and Jim O'Rourke alongside a slowly shifting melodic sensibility almost akin to the more tattered ends of minimalism.
